Guilt & Shame Podcast
Guilt & Shame Podcast
Gabe, Rob & Vicky Jones hilariously explore the subjects we've all experienced Guilt & Shame in. From soiling yourself on a first date to mastabating at you nan's house, and with the help of some very special guests including Pheobe Waller-Bridge and Gabe's mum, the gang will leave no shameful stone unturned.
Gabriel Bisset-Smith tells the most original & funny joke in the universe!
My debut solo show produced by the soho theatre and performed at Underbelly in Edinburgh and Soho Theatre in London.
In association with the Soho Theatre and directed by Vicky Jones, multi-award winning performer Gabriel Bisset-Smith will take you on a journey of intergalactic travel, strange sexual positions, bizarre dance routines, Kanye West and unhinged murder to deliver you ultimate hilarity (or will he?).
‘A big, epic, inventive hour.’ Time Out
‘There’s dancing, gunfire, standing ovations, crowns, audience participation, a singalong to Robbie Williams’s ‘Angels’ and his gran. It is incredibly funny… Bisset-Smith is magnetic.’ Fest
‘This was a smart show where pains had been taken with writing and construction. Bisset-Smith lays bare the pain of creating a new and original show when there is nothing new under the sun.’ Chortle
‘It’s brilliantly constructed… Bisset-Smith is an engaging solo storyteller: smart, modern and very funny.’ List

Music sounds better with EU!!!
One off performance celebrating the house music of Europe with special guests Jeremy Corbyn (Marianne Chase), The Sun Newspaper (Kat Bond) and Theresa May (herself). Performed at Latitude Festival.
Sex. Drugs. Partying. Pornography. Bestiality. Downton Abbey. There are lots of addictions in the world but Guilt & Shame have managed to get them all. After sell out 2011/2012 shows, at the Soho Theatre and the Underbelly in Edinburgh, Gabe and Rob return for another wild night of sketch comedy. With pumping music, crazy dance numbers and rapping transvestites Addicted To Everything will take you on a journey of sin, redemption then right back to sin again. It’s a show so good that once will never be enough.
With an onstage DJ, dance numbers and saucy surprises Guilt & Shame return to the Edinburgh Fringe at the world famous Underbelly after their 2011 sell-out shows. Join eternal virgin Rob and tragic slut Gabe as they go on their quest to find The One (or whoever’s desperate enough). With a night that’s filled with painful sexual encounters, paranoid drug dealers, grieving transsexual, talking penises and a banging soundtrack this is one late-night party you don’t want to miss.
Gabe and Rob try to perform their sketch show but the sins of last night return to humiliate them. Drugs, theft and bestiality are just some of the disgraceful acts they will be downing with a bottle of vodka and vomiting onto stage in this outrageous show."

I wanted to edit on the imovie app on the iphone as well but ran out of memory half way through. So it's half edited on the iphone and half on the Macbook.
